Musk plans for “Twitter 2.0” include video calls and encrypted chat

Elon Musk wants Twitter video calls and encrypted chats, according to a recording of an internal meeting he participated in obtained by The Verge.

Musk discussed his plans for “Twitter 2.0,” specifically its messaging functions, during a meeting on November 22, according to the site. Musk stated that he desires encrypted texting, video chats, and voice calls.

Musk was quoted by The Verge as saying, “We want to enable users to be able to communicate without being concerned about their privacy, [or] without being concerned about a data breach at Twitter causing all of their DMs to hit the web, or think that maybe someone at Twitter could be spying on their DMs.”

The site described how in 2018, it was discovered that direct messages between firms and their clients had been leaked by third parties.

In August of this year, it was discovered that a former employee provided private information of Twitter users who were critical of Saudi Arabia to the monarchy.

Musk stated that Moxie Marlinspike, the creator of the popular encrypted chat software Signal, is “possibly willing to assist” with encrypting Twitter messages.

Marlinspike was a former Twitter employee after Twitter bought her company, Whisper Systems, in 2010. Marlinspike would depart in 2013 and establish Open Whisper Systems, which released Signal in 2014.
